Really enjoy the dining experience at the Gasparilla Inn. Old Florida elegance and hospitality. Charming hotel. Beautifully presented food and perfectly prepared. Love seeing the men in jackets. So classy.

My son was visiting us this past Jan and wanted to take me out for a nice dinner. He booked reservations through "Open Table". There was a notation of "jacket required" but no mention of jeans. My son was dressed in dark jeans, white linen shirt and blazer with loafers. He looked very nice, but when we got to the... More

The Gasparilla Inn is a wonderful place and the Main Dining Room is a really terrific restaurant. Wonderful food and amazing service. We had three really great meals at night and three really great breakfasts. A complete package, the Inn and the restaurant.

Food and service are first class. The modified American plan is a good value at the high end. Breakfast is either buffet or a la carte. The dinner menu choices are limited but cover all food groups and change nightly.

The Gasparilla Inn is a really charming old Florida Inn that has been restored to its early grandeur. It is gorgeous without being stuffy, very Florida-like in decor without being kitchie. The service in the main dining room is impeccable, the drinks are delicious and the food is outstanding. What more needs to be said?

For dinner, our red snapper special was greasy and overdone like a hard hash brown paddy. What a pity to trash such a nice piece of fish. The Gasparilla Inn is beautifully restored and well worth the visit, but as far as the food goes, you might want to stick to breakfast or cocktails.
